Students who are especially interested in conducting research while in our program should consider applying to the thesis track.
Selection will be based on the following criteria:
- Previous research experience
- Grade point average
- Recommendation letters from professors
- Statement of interest
Please contact faculty members who conduct research in your areas of interest to inquire about whether they are taking thesis students for the upcoming year, and to discuss possible topics (see Faculty Contact Info). Be as specific as you can about your research experience and interests.
Contact should be made with potential supervisors as early as possible, and well before the application deadline. We strongly encourage this early contact so that you are eligible to apply for funding opportunities (also see Funding). Many scholarship applications require the support of a potential faculty supervisor. Most scholarship deadlines fall before our January program application deadline.
